We are delighted to announce the second of our new format of Instagram takeover’s, this time with Elaine Taylor (@sunflowerof21). We started our new format with Clay Benskin (@clay_benskin) last week, after following his highly successful takeover of the NewYorker Photo – @newyorkerphoto.

This week Taylor will follow the same format, posting three images per day of her incredible bright and colourful photography, which includes portraiture, still life and landscapes. A contrast to Benskin’s work but no less thoughly alluring.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 5 August 2018

Share

Photographer, Mary McCartney (Paul’s daughter), with whom I used to work at a London photo agency said, I’m embarrassed to say that my main camera is my iPhone”. That’s not to say she doesn’t use 35 mm film, a Leica in fact, or a DSLR, even a Polaroid, but what she loves about her iPhone is ‘how immediate it is‘. Contrasing with Grayson Perry, artist confession, ‘the cameraphone has made the forest of glowing screens ubiquitous in museums, galleries and at events. Maybe I’m a snob, but it’s put me off photography’. We take thousands and thousands of pictures, every single day, do we treasure them? Some we do, each represents the power of time, mortality and memory, in essence, the power of photography. It’s very nature, evokes like no other art form, the split second, already spent…

Enjoy this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase, a few minutes [for you], of time very well spent.

Apple’s WWDC 2018 Kicks Off Today – What To Expect…

Share

Today, at 10 am pacific Time, UK 6 pm, we’ll be tuned in to find out what Apple has up their sleeves and we can’t wait! Rumours abound, as always and one that seems almost certain is iOS 12. iOS 11 has not been entirely popular for Apple users, so Apple is keen to push ahead with a fully stable iOS 12. We’re expecting to see amongst other things a redesigned home screen and photography enhancements and we do know that AR is getting a bigger push this year. Reuters are working on the theory that Apple is working on a way for two iPhones to share AR data directly, that sounds interesting! Apparently, an upgraded version of Face ID is also coming, including the ability to unlock your iPhone with the device held in a horizontal position, that would be good. There are also rumours that Apple’s TrueDepth camera technology is coming to future iPad versions, fingers crossed for that one!

What else? Well there are rumours that Apple will roll out a host of additional health and fitness functionality to the Apple Watch, via their HealthKit app.

As this is the WWDC conference, it’s unlikely that Apple will launch new high end iPhones but no doubt they will be announced and launched in September.

One thing I’m interested in in particular is Apple AirPower and I’d really like to see the wireless charging pad, I’m not sure if this is going to show up today, but I’ll be watching closely.

You can follow our thoughts and coverage over at our uber popular Twitter channel, here – see you later 😉

Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘The Decisive Moment’ with Deborah McMillion from the USA

Share

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, I have asked mobile artists to consider their work within a story telling/narrative framework. My thoughts behind this, include an 18th century thesis, ‘Laocoon: An Essay on the Limits of Painting and Poetry‘, Gotthold Lessing argued that although painting could not communicate narrative in the sense of telling a story, it could imply drama by aspiring to capture the “pregnant moment”. In photography, this idea thrives as the “decisive moment” first introduced by Henri Cartier-Bresson and his followers. Therefore, my question to a mobile artist we hugely admire, Deborah McMillion  from the USA [with the above in mind], is “how you build your image to express or allude to some sort of story. Do you plot, or not? How do you define it? McMillion has created an incredibly powerful and artistic video, please enjoy!

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it. Thank you.

Thank you for being a reader and viewer of our wonderful site. If you would like to view our previous TrueView Interviews, please go here.
